Welcome to dickblick
Artograph has been supplying artists with the finest projectors available for over 60 years. With special features to make scaling artwork and designs even faster and easier, these projectors are designed to save time and increase accuracy. Create banners, murals, and paintings with the precise clarity necessary for airbrushing and fine art.
Both Prism models have the following features:
250W Photo Bulb
Two 250W photo bulbs are included with the projector. The advantage of using an ordinary 250W bulb in a projector is its longer bulb life. However, the 250W photo bulb is recommended because it gives a much truer reproduction of color. Lasts approximately 25 hours.
Super Prism Lens
Add the superior quality Super Prism lens, described above, to upgrade any Prism art projector to the Super Prism art projector. The lens gives you finer detail and increased image clarity, even when images are enlarged 20X.
This projector is specially designed for projecting a wide assortment of originals, such as patterns, sketches, and line drawings. Includes the standard Prism lens. The horizontal projection range allows for enlargement up to 20X and reduction down to 80% (of the original size), by simply reversing the lens. 225 mm f/4.8 lens. Weighs 8 lbs (3.6 kg).
The Super Prism
With its finer color and enlargement capabilities, the Super Prism is the choice of many fine artists, muralists, and airbrush artists. It includes both the Prism (see above) and Super Prism lenses. The Super Prism lens is a superior quality, three-element color-corrected lens, ideal for photographs that require fine detail reproduction. It has better accuracy than the Prism lens, and a horizontal projection range of 3X to 20X. 230 mm, f/4.5 lens. Weighs 9 lbs (4 kg).
Electrical Warning — All electrical products have U.S. standard plugs and voltage. Due to damage that can occur when using incompatible plugs, sockets, or converters, Blick does not ship electrical items or accessories outside of North America or to freight forwarders.

Hint — click a thumbnail to enlarge.
The high-intensity photo bulb lasts only about 25 hours. The projector can operate with a normal 250W bulb, but the photo bulb provides intense and vivid color.
Photo bulbs are difficult to find except at specialized retailers. It is a good idea to have some spares on hand.

Over ten years in my studio
Comments about Artograph Prism and Super Prism Art Projectors:
I bought the super prism from Dick Blick about 15 years ago and still using it in the studio to transfer image sketches to my canvases. It is a great design assest in deciding how big and where you want your painting on the canvas. A real time saver for a commercial artist. The photo bulbs blow easily when bumped or experience a big power surge, but it will work with lower wattage store bought bulbs for tracing your outlines. If you want to do beautiful detailed paintings, the super prism is recommended.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

super prism lens
By George the teacher
from Manteca, CA
The lens I ordered is just as I expected. I know I'll get many years of enjoyment. Blick has once again given me the quality and satisfaction I expect. As an art teacher, I am always looking for new and exciting products, and I am able to find most everything I need, at Blick's. Thank you.
not what I expected it to be
from Orlando Florida
Not at all what I expected. It is way too big and bulky and gives off very little light, even when its dark. I could not see the image that I was trying to transfer onto a canvas to paint. Very disappointed, very sad, I'm sorry I spent the money-quite a bit of money.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

A most wonderful product in all respects

I've only used it once thus far, and it worked great! It was a little larger than I was expecting, but I've never owned a projector before, so I hadn't a clue. The 7"x 7" view window was larger than most of the other projectors I looked at and that was important to me. This is awesome, now I can put facial detail on my canvas and get it right the first time!

I found the Super Prism Art Projector worked exactly as it was described. It does an excellent job of projecting the imagery on both canvases and walls. It's cut my layout time in half when starting a new project, especially for murals. As noted, it works best in a very dark room or when projected at night. I'm very pleased with my purchase and the fact the price was much better at Blick than at other retailers.
